A trek is walking at your own pace on well-developed trails that pass through village to village mainly in the hilly or mountainous region elevation up to 5000m. You will enjoy a close contact with people in remote mountain villages whose lifestyle has not changed for generations. A warm relation with the villagers is always a nice experience of the life. We use their simple home as our overnight stay spot in some remote region. Normally there are better teahouses are available along the way. You can trek all season in Nepal. In the monsoon and winter season it will be little difficult. All though it is possible to some areas like Upper Mustang, Dolpo and Mangag. These areas are rain shadow zone where raining is a myth. In the winter days you can make hiking in the low altitude region below the snow capture line. During the rainy season you will find beautiful countryside with flora that is seen, which is not seen in the other season of the year.
You do not need to be a professional mountaineer to trek on the hills of Nepal. But it is always beneficial to explore something more if you are physically fit. Perhaps the most enjoyable part of our trek will be the cool air of the mountains and magnificent views of the mountain peaks.
Your trek will begin after breakfast. The morning walk is usually 3-4 hours and lunch will be serve around noon. The camping site is reached around 4 p.m. and in the evening there will be plenty of time to relax. Each day is planned so that if you are a slow or a fast walker, there will be a lot of time to spare.
If you are trekking in the higher altitudes, and feeling unwell please tell your group leader immediately. Do not ignore headaches as they are the first sign of the altitudes sickness. Your inability to complete the trek is nothing compared to your health. Remember that your guides are responsible and professional so feel free to tell him about your health condition.
Trekking with a guide & porters:
Those who are self-sufficient and experienced trekkers, a guide and porters can be hired from a authorized company. One major advantage to hire a guide and porter from a company is the reliability and responsibility. This approach is suite for those who want to take all responsibility like arranging entry permits, transfers, food, accommodation etc. However this option is not very convenient for the travelers because they need time to arrange all the logistic and every concern of the trips before and during the trek. It is better choose the package deal either tea house or camping to relax on holiday and free enough time to enjoy with natural panorama and lively people.
Trekking seems to be a physical work. Of course it is some sort of physical work as well. Trekking in the trails of Nepal is adventure too. Thought you do not need to be a best athlete or a well trained mountaineer to trek in Nepal. A few weeks of soft training and mental preparation is a bonus before your arrival to Nepal. The best way is a long walk is always rewarding. What is most important is to be in good physical and mental condition before you start trek. Take few hours of walk in a day on the road. Walk upstairs rather than using the elevator. Those how are planning to climb the trekking peak need to be physically very fit. For more information please ask with us, we are pleased to help you.
